Town Council

Beginning with the November 3, 2020 election, Town of Windsor Councilmembers are elected by a district-based election system. The At-large Mayor will serve a two-year term and four District Councilmembers will serve a four-year term. The term expirations are staggered so that not all terms expire at the same time. See the transition to district-based elections below. Every December, the Town Council re-organizes and will select a new Vice Mayor.


  • The "At-large" district-based Mayor seat was elected during the 2020 General Municipal Election, and will continue to be elected every two-years thereafter. 
  • The Councilmember District 3 seat was elected during the 2020 General Municipal Election, and will continue to be elected every four-years thereafter. 


  • The two-year "At-large" Mayor seat will be up for election at this election.
  • Town Council seats from Town Council Districts 1, 2, and 4 shall be elected at the November 2022 General Municipal Election, and every four-years thereafter. 

Council meetings are broadcast live on cable television (Comcast Channel 27 and AT&T U-verse Channel 99) from the Town of Windsor Council Chambers located at 9291 Old Redwood Highway, Bldg. 400, Windsor, CA 95492.

Regular Sessions

Regularly scheduled Council meetings are held the first and third Wednesday of each month at 6 p.m. in the Town Hall Council Chambers, located at 9291 Old Redwood Highway, Building 400, Windsor, CA 95492. During regular sessions, the Town Council can take action in several ways. The Council may adopt an ordinance or Town law. Ordinances usually take effect 30 days following their adoption and become part of the Town's Municipal Code. The Council may amend or repeal an ordinance by adopting another ordinance.

The Council may also pass a resolution to express policy direction or make a public statement. The Council passes a motion to approve or deny a proposed action, such as the award of a bid. The Consent Calendar allows for routine business items for which no special study or discussion is expected. Councilmembers may remove items from the Consent Calendar for discussion if they choose.

Special Meetings/Workshops

In special meetings or workshops, Town staff may present to the Council with detailed briefings on a variety of issues. Councilmembers discuss various topics, ask questions and give staff direction on how to proceed.

Closed Sessions

Council does occasionally meet in Closed Session, which is not open to the public. By law, the Council can only discuss certain items of business during these sessions. These topics include personnel matters, property acquisition, and disposition, and legal advice on matters of litigation or potential litigation.
